BUDDING poets from Uttoxeter are being urged to contribute to a unique anthology to celebrate a charity’s 35th anniversary this year.
Staffordshire Poet Laureate Emily Rose Galvin is helping to put together a book of poems which will be sold in aid of St Giles Hospice.
Ian Leech, community engagement manager at St Giles, which provides care for people in Uttoxeter, said themes for the anthology were inspired by cards used in Dying Matters Week.
He said: “Every year we go out into the community and ask people to fill in cards with a prompt on them, from picking their funeral song to what makes life worthwhile.
